  • Windows Phone 8 apps will run on Windows Phone 8.1 devices. If you would like to take advantage of new WP 8.1 features , you can develop WP 8.1 universal or Silverlight apps using VS 2013 update 2 or higher. 

    More information is available in the below link:


    Regarding your first question, do you have Windows Phone 8.0 SDK installed? If you  have not installed it you can install it from below location and let us know if you still the same problem.
